Posted on 01/20/2014 6:47:13 PM PST by Olog-hai
Germany and the US appear to be edging closer to political confrontation. The Federal Prosecutor says there is sufficient evidence to open a politically explosive investigation into NSA spying on Chancellor Angela Merkels mobile phone. [ ]
In the close to eight months that have passed since the first reports were published about the National Security Agencys massive spying operations, the only things Germany has been given by the US are well-meaning assurances. Last summer, the German government sent a list of questions about their surveillance programs to the Americans and the British, whose GCHQ intelligence agency has likewise been accused of conducting espionage against European Union member countries. To this day, neither has provided complete answers. Instead, ever more threads are becoming visible in the global spying network. It is also slowly dawning on the Germans that the parameters of a No-Spy Agreement announced by the NSA will never become a reality. German government representatives last week denied media reports claiming that negotiations were close to collapsing. At the same time, hopes are no longer high.

If German authorities decide to indict someone in the United States will they give Interpol the task of apprehending them and smuggling them out of the country?
Why not? After all, Obama gave Interpol immunity on US soil back in 2009 (wielding the pen and the phone, of course).
Just a distraction. She knew she was being spied upon. Her meeting with His Arrogance was to discuss the shortage of the gold on the delivery from the Federal Reserve.
Yep, Obama will file an EEOC case against them and Holder will open a profiling investigation.
The BND has to have been kicked into high gear now that they have the NSA over a barrel.
What's she complaining about, Germany got the 5mt the Fed found in sweepings.
you can do eet
Any truly thorough investigation is likely to expose lots of lawbreaking by the BND and German politicians, which is why any investigation is likely to go nowhere; or, at best degenerate into another "it's all the Amis fault" variety show for the distraction of the German masses.
Primary creator of the BND was FHO head Reinhardt Gehlen. He may have served the CIA in order to get his “Gehlen Org” to take off (full of former SD, SS and Gestapo officers, for the record), but when it became the BND under the West German government, they were cut loose in 1956 and allowed to become autonomous.
Excellent. We sure aren’t going to get anything resembling the truth from the U.S. government.
It looks like the germans stopped loving Barack.
It must be beacause he's black.
2 pages of complete drivel. Obammie caught eavesdropping, says he’ll quit, but he lies. Obammie is a liar.
So Germany won’t investigate the NSA?
Even if they don’t do it openly, I think they may do so covertly.
Well, they can’t stop him from doing that. He’s certainly on his way to becoming persona non grata over there.
And he still won’t learn that apology tours don’t work.
Yes, he did. Let’s see how fast he reverses himself if suddenly, the possibility that persons he deems necessary become targets of criminal investigations by Germany.
